Is there a better way to beat the 'celtic curse' than raising funds to defeat iron overload on St Patrick's Day? Put yourself to the test at the St Patricks Day Challenge. Run as much or as little as you wish, and complete a 5k, 10k, Half-marathon, Marathon, or Ultra in either the 6-hour or 4-hour event. Come to celebrate St Patricks Day and earn your fantastic finisher's medal.

Are you interested in taking part in or any other event in support of the fight against iron overload in the UK?

  • STEP 1: Book online yourself or contact us first if you need help with a place.
  • STEP 2: Set-up your Fundraising Page on our website or JustGiving and let friends, family and your local community know.
  • STEP 3: Take part and capture the occasion with photos and social media posts

To find out more about this event and book your place just follow this link to the St Patrick's Day Challenge 

We can send you a fundraisers pack when you set up a sponsorship page. You can also make the event an #IronRun and carry an iron chain when you take part! But don't worry - its made of plastic. Just ask us to send one with your fundraising pack.

At Haemochromatosis UK we do not organise and run these events, but we are very grateful to the specialist companies that do so. It is important to read the full terms and conditions of the event you choose and we are only able to advise on the fundraising you do in aid of Haemochromatosis UK.


There are lots of open events to choose from. As well as the selection on our website, you can visit the following for more inspiration:
